  • From the beginning of April to the end, it blooms from bottom to top, so you can enjoy the best time to see. In the middle of April, the best season, we took a bus to Okusenon and went down from top to bottom. It was early in the morning, but the bus waited about 30 minutes.

  • It was completely after the cherry blossom season was over, but it was originally a green mountainous place. Quietly, even when only some tourists are there, you can taste the green of the mountain.
